    Apple Slice 600I have stumbled recently on a recipe, cut off from an old newspaper, written by a lady’s grandmother and used hundreds and hundreds of times through several generations.

    The idea sounds nostalgically appealing. How many of our grandmother’s recipes do we realy know and use today?

    In a age where ingredients were spears, and there was definitely lack of modern kitchen technology, cooking tasty treats like this one must have been such a feast.

    Going back to basics and re-creating ancient recipes warms my heart somehow, and strange to say makes me feel like a woman. One, of the hundreds and thousands and millions throughout the history, who have sat by the stove and feed their dearest ones with simple dishes made with love and care.

    {Vanilla and Cinnamon are my late edition to the recipe.}
